“Memorable for all the right reasons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2010

Quaint, romantic upstairs room facing the street in a beautiful Georgian village. The room has been used by travellers for over 150 years, so it had a special feel...no ghosts though! Large, clean shared bathrooms at either end of the corridor. Breakfast in the lovely old dining room downstairs was delicious. We also had a lovely dinner there and there were nice touches like home made bread served in clay pots. This is old world style accommodation that is very reasonably priced. Parking only at the front of the hotel, but it seems to be a very safe little village. Free high speed internet was an added 21st century bonus. The cakes and slices from the two village bakeries are the best I've ever tasted.

This lovely 1835 convict built hotel is in the National Trust listed heritage town of Ross in the Midlands of Central Tasmania. Ross is comprised of mostly all convict built buildings and is heritage listed, has a convict jail, Famous convict built bridge, 2 amazing bakeries, craft centres selling wood and wool products, upmarket antiques and homewares.

The hotel is the GENUINE old creaky staircased pub of Yesteryear with the cosy lounge and log fire, leather armachairs and a good, reasonably priced in-house menu for lunch and dinner most nights. I stayed overnight in a sunny double room (1 of 7) with shared facilities, and good continental breakfast thrown in. My wonderful stay cost a little under $90.00 AUD. I believe there is a self contained cottage available also for about $125.00 AUD a double with Cont. breakfast.

Would recommend this Pub with Atmosphere to anyone who cherishes the past and a warm welcome on a cold winter's evening. Tracked my booking through the RACQ (Auto Club)Accommodation guide (Web address -www.manoross.com.au) The property is 3 star++ rated and Tasmanian Tourism Accredited.

  • Liked — The Real Deal Historic nature of the pub and good food and ambience
  • Disliked — Probably the Stairs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2007

We arrived in Launceston on a Friday night for a short trip, and decided to have dinner at the amazing Luck’s restaurant before heading to Hobart. But late at night, who wants to drive to Hobart? According to the map, the township of Ross was roughly between to the two cities, about 45minutes each way.

We looked at the Ross Bakery Inn, but settled on The Man O’ Ross Hotel as our accommodation, as it was only to be a flying visit, arriving late and leaving early enough to get to a morning tour of the Cascade Brewery via a bit of sight seeing in Oatlands. The tariff was a budget AU$85 for a double room with shared facilities.

The Man O’ Ross is an old Tavern constructed from hand cut sandstone in 1835, five years after the historic convict built bridge around the corner. It is comfortable and cosy. The roaring fireplaces instantly drew us in on this wintry night. Downstairs is the public bar, bistro and lounge where a night-cap can be taken on big leather sofas by a fireplace. Upstairs is a guest lounge with kitchenette, tea and coffee facilities and TV with DVD player.

On offer is a self-contained ensuite room or a number of bedrooms with multiple, gender specific, shared bathroom facilities. Our room was at the front looking over the town and next to the pine clad facilities, which were immaculately clean and featured heating and a hair dryer. The bedroom was small, but fine for our needs and tastefully decorated in rustic pine and floral motifs. The mattress was quite firm and there was both a heater and electric blankets to keep us snug. Generous sized towels and a cake of soap each were provided.

Included in the tariff was a simple breakfast of cereal, stone fruit, toast, orange juice, tea and coffee, available from 7am-9am. We grabbed a newspaper and took our meal in front of the fire in the bistro/lounge area.

Outside was an inviting beer garden, ideal for a little respite on summer days touring in the area. Around the corner from the lounge was an excellent conference room/private dining room, featuring small crystal chandeliers and sandstone walls, a large fireplace and antique paraphernalia. Under the stairs we found an internet station, over looked by a large stuffed stag’s head.

The staff at the Man O’ Ross were very hospitable and accommodating. Although brief, we found our stay very satisfactory and good value for money.
